Invoice FAQs

What is this invoice?

The eBay invoice is a statement of your selling activity on eBay for a one - month period. This is the amount of selling fees that you need to pay eBay by the due date mentioned in the invoice.

How can I view the invoice?

You can view your invoice online in your My eBay in the the "Seller Account" section under "My Account". Click the "View invoices" link to see your eBay invoices. You will also receive an email notification when eBay creates an invoice for your account.

Does everyone receive the invoice?

No, only users who owe eBay fees for their listing activity on eBay for the previous month will receive an invoice.

Note: eBay will usually only create and send you an invoice if your account balance was greater than Rs. 25.00 during the billing period. To see your account activity and balance when it is less than Rs. 25.00, go to your Account Status page.

What are the fees that are charged in the invoice?

An invoice contains the fees you have been charged since the previous month. These include:

  • Transaction fees you've been charged for listing items, such as Feature Fees and Final Value Fees. Free charges are not displayed.

  • Monthly and one-time fees, such as a Shop subscription fee.

  • Any discounts to these fees

What are the other entries in the invoice?

In addition to these fees, an invoice can contain:

  • Credits you've earned, such as a Final Value Fee credit

  • Payments you've made since your last invoice

What are the taxes on the invoice?

Charges for Service Tax and Education Cess are levied on the total invoice amount. The total amounts, and the taxes levied, are displayed in the Summary section. The Taxes for Fees and Credits section are also displayed at the bottom of each section. The sum of the taxes in the sections equals that in the Summary section.

What is the final amount I have to pay?

You need to pay the full amount specified as Total Amount Due within the Summary section of your invoice.

By when do I need to pay?

eBay requires payment in full each month if your invoice has a balance of Rs. 25.00 or more.

Your payment will be due the same date each month - either the 15th of the month or the last day of the month, depending on your account's invoice date. Go to the Account Status page and check the Invoice Date in the table.

Your invoice date determines both when you'll receive your invoices and when your payments are due.

  • If your invoice date is the 15th of the month, you'll receive your invoice between the 20th and 22nd of the month, and your payment will be due on the 15th of the following month.

  • If your invoice date is the last day of the month, you'll receive your invoice between the 5th and 7th of the following month, and your payment is due on the last day of the following month.

For example, suppose your invoice date is the last day of the month, and you were charged selling fees during the month of May. You'll receive an invoice between June 5th and June 7th, and your payment will be due on June 30th.

What happens if I do not pay my fees by the due date?

You will be billed a late payment charge of 1.5% of the balance past due or the highest amount permitted by applicable law-whichever is lower-if payment of your balance has not taken place by the payment due date. You will be charged interest the day after the payment due date. Your account may be suspended for non-payment, and you may be responsible for collection costs.

In the event your seller's account is suspended for any reason, any amount due on your account will immediately become due and payable. eBay reserves the right to immediately charge any amount you have not previously disputed to the payment method that you are using.

How can I pay my Seller Fees?

You can make a payment at any time by going to the Seller Account section in My eBay. eBay offers the following ways to pay your selling fees:

  • Online - Credit Card or Online Bank Transfer

  • Offline - Cheque or Demand Draft
